...scale of J in. to 1 ft. MEASUREMENT OF ANGLES 324. The circumference of every circle, large or small, **is supposed to be divided into 360 equal parts, called degrees (°); each degree into 60** minutes ('); and each minute into 60 seconds ("). Thus: the circumference of the circle ABCD = 360°.... | |

...Degeneration of Energy. — The deterioration or weakening of energy or force. Degrees. — The circumference **of every circle is supposed to be divided into 360 equal parts, called degrees;** thus, a degree is jJijth of the circumference of any circle. A degree is divided into 60 parts called... | |

...units. The whole circumference is divided into 360 equal parts called degrees. Each degree is divided **into 60 equal parts called minutes, and each minute into 60 equal parts called seconds.** As one degree is ^^ of any circumference, a degree on one circle is not of the same size as a degree... | |

...protractor, Fig. 14, showing degrees and fractions of degrees, is necessary. Each degree is divided **into 60 equal parts called minutes, ', and each minute into 60 equal parts called seconds,** ". Thus to represent an angle of 23 degrees, 47 minutes, and 9 seconds, write 23° 47' 9". The relations... | |
